no point as its the exact same processor as the 920 just named differently the 930 is faster.
The Xeon is not supported on that mobo.
actually yes it is! all 35xx and 36xx series Xeons are supported on X58 platform.
Thank for the help so far
the P6T WS Professional and P6T6 WS Revolution both support LGA1366 socket for Intel® Xeon® processor 3500 Series and LGA1366 socket for Intel® Xeon® processor E5502/E5504/E5506 ,My thought was that Xeon has always been told to me as been more powerful and better than the standard type of CPU's but if there is no real gain I will go will the corei7 930.
Xeons plural in the past (and to some degree still) were recommended over single processors.
DUAL Xeons will add about 35-40% more horse power than its single (same speed same family) counterpart.
however GHZ is still king so a single 980x (3.33GHz 6 core) is better than say a dual Xeon 2.66 or evn 2.8GHz.
where a dual 3.33GHz would be even better (12 cores)
but vastly more money than the 980x so its very much dimishing returns. (there are some who need this)
also the memory bandwidth is better on dual Xeon, vs single CPU. (again same family)
the 980x has far great speed and memory bandwidth over the older dual xeons.
something many people do not understand about processors and silicon they come from.
the 900 series processors (other than the 980x and 970 which are 32nm) all come from the same silicon die
all the Xeon 5500 series and 3500 seies same
all the 700 and 800 series same thing. (socket 1156)
the 5600 series Xeons are the same as the 980x,970. (and the new 3600 series Xeon)
so a 3530 is the same thing as a 930
dont be fooled by marketing HYPE
In addition to Scott's very valid remarks, let me give you my opinion:
1. Essentially there is no difference between the W series and the i7-9xx series.
2. Dual Xeons in the 56xx series are fabulous at MPEG encoding.
3. Dual Xeons in this series suffer from the dual processor architecture and have a very hard time keeping up with single OC'ed i7's for H.264 work.
4. Dual processors suffer significantly from the latency introduced by the architecture and will nearly always be far outperformed by single i7's when rendering with MPE.
5. The most economical choice by far is a single i7-9xx.
As a rough rule of thumb, double the processors, then double the rendering time with hardware MPE and halve the MPEG encoding time.
Thank you this clears up for me , and I will go with the Corei7 930.
